Football Returns to Brebeuf!



After an absence of almost 40 years, football has finally returned to Brebeuf! Over sixty students are participating in the junior and senior teams. They are off to an auspicious start and had their first victory against Lawrence Park Collegiate.


As coach John Engel observes, " Coaching the team has been one of the most rewarding experiences in my 16 year coaching career.  The kids basically started learning the game from scratch and the amount that they improve every week is astounding.  They work VERY hard (football is a 3 hour a day commitment) and it shows.  They haven't complained, made excuses or quit, they continue to impress me with their integrity and effort.  I'm having a blast and so are they."


"It's good for the school because it brings people together and creates strong bonds of friendship," remarks Grade 11 student Alexander Davies. "It's an outlet to focus on more than academics. It's the best sport!"
